I've been having a problem with the keyboard on my powerbook G4. I had downloaded a budgeting program and after I had, some keys on my keyboard started acting up. They will work for a while, then stop, then work again, but lately, they hardly ever work. I've put a replacement keyboard in, and that helped for a while, but then it started acting up again. I even reinstalled Mac OS X, the way where u don't lose the accounts on your computer, and that worked for that night, but then started acting up again.

Anyone know what might be wrong? Should I wipe the computer clean and reinstall OS X??

Please help!

Powerbook5,6, Mac OS X (10.4)

    Try logging on as a different user to see if the problem follows.

    Do you have a USB keyboard to try plugging in?

    sometimes my laptop will go into num lock without me even doing it, and the num lock key WILL NOT even be lit. All I have to do is press num lock once to light it, and once again to turn it off. I don't know if this is your problem. Maybe?
